Reveal, Linear and PlybooSound panels are architecturally inspired to bring textures, colors, designs, and unique & stunning visual effects to any interior space.

Sheets are  4’x8′ X 3/4″ thick and available prefinished or finished. Note that images of materials below are a close representation of color and texture, but actual product color and texture may vary.

Reveal Collection

Carved and textured bamboo wall panels

Plyboo’s Reveal Collection is a series of carved and textured bamboo panels. When carved, an interplay between the face layer and revealed inner core creates a stunning visual effect. Plyboo’s proprietary RealCore technology insures the revealed cores are consistent and that layers of bamboo material in bi-directional construction allow for stability. This artistic collection is available in eight patterns and color options.

PlybooSound Collection

Acoustical bamboo wall panels

The PlybooSound panel brings together the elegance of bamboo architectural designs with proprietary sound-dampening technology to help reduce ambient noise. Great for hospitality, public venues and large open work spaces. PlybooSound insures that exposed cores are consistent, and bidirectional construction allows for maximum stability. Available in eight patterns and colors.

Linear Line Collection

Inspired by the depth and movement of hand loomed fabric

The Linear Line Collection is made entirely of carved Plyboo bamboo panels, with a vertically fluted face layer revealing a uniquely graphic inner core. These intersecting surfaces harmoniously suggest the natural, tactile quality of a woven textile that is both curious and compelling. The Linear Line collection is suitable for any interior feature and is available in six architecturally inspired styles.

Plywood


Plyboo’s flat-grain and edge-grain style of bamboo plywood captures the natural aesthetic of bamboo, with the bamboo node highly visible in its horizontal orientation. Ideal for both commercial and residential environments, Plyboo’s architectural-grade bamboo plywood offers excellent dimensional stability and can be glued or mechanically fastened using the same methods used on wood.

PlybooStrand


PlybooStrand uses strand technology to turn 100% rapidly renewable bamboo into a beautiful yet exceptionally durable green building material for both commercial and residential use. Strand differs from typical bamboo material in that the bamboo is not cut into strips and laminated, but instead thrashed and pressed into dense logs. The logs are sliced and fabricated into plywood, creating a harder, denser material with an entirely new bamboo aesthetic.
